.com. ♪ campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >> when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. megyn: that was president obama yesterday defending u.n. ambassador susan rice for her response in the days following the terrorist attack in benghazi in what has now become one of the largest conflicts for his administration, at least on the terrorism front. the president's remarks yesterday raise new questions over the conflicting accounts from the white house about the deadly attack. here's why. on september 11th, four americans were killed -- you know that now -- in our consulate in benghazi, including our ambassador. it was a terrorist attack. on the 16th of september, five days later, ambassador rice went on five sunday shows, including fox news sunday, and suggested that the attack was linked to an internet video. >> best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack, that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo
on global warming from a prestigious panel of scientists convened by the un. >> a new grim report out today from... >> hockenberry: this comprehensive report in 2007 took it to another level. scientists from 30 nations concluded that global warming is unequivocal and that human activity is mostly the cause. >> it is the definitive report on global warming, and it's frightening. >> i call upon the peace prize laureate for 2007, al gore, to come forward... >> hockenberry: the un scientists and former vice- president al gore would share the nobel peace prize. the cause had a consensus and a credible leader. the skeptics would take on both. >> i think al gore was probably the best thing that could happen to global warming skeptics. >> from my perspective, al gore was the perfect proponent and leader of the global warming alarmists, because he's very politically divisive and controversial. >> i think it was his tone and manner he did, at a certain point, come across as holier than thou. and that's another thing about americans. they are not really big on holier-than-thou. >> now that is a g2v ai
for the past four u.n. ambassadors to the u.n. mohammed morsi was something of a hero to the united states when he helped broker that cease-fire between israel and hamas in gaza. now what is going on. >> my, what six weeks will do. six weeks ago we had president obama saying that egypt and morsi wasn't really an enemy and they weren't really our friend. wasn't an ally. six weeks later we see secretary of state hillary clinton gushing over the fact that egypt was able to broker this cease-fire. clearly, jon, the cease-fire is great news, and i think that the egyptian president does deserve credit for brokering this. he went in to gaza, he tried to do what he could. i think most observers were a little bit uncomfortable with wh he was saying inside gaza and i think he came down on hamas' side a little bit too much. he is a leader of the muslim brotherhood. we were a little bit concerned with his actions. but then when the cease-fire happened secretary of state hillary clinton stood next to him and really just gushed over the fact that he was able to produce this cease-fire. then you saw -- jon: d
that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with john mccain's clip if we can. dan, this is john mccain on -- john mccain by the way who voted to approve condoleezza rice as secretary of state. talking about susan rice. here's the clip. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i would do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> john: that was the man who thought sarah palin was qualified to be president talking about someone who doesn't understand. now not to be outdone senator lindsey graham, the most interesting of all southern republicans i would say came out a few hours later and t

're in a place with a weak government, you have perhaps a u.n. operation in the international coordination is also leadership. you have confusion. i think one of the highest hurdles to overcome is the residual feeling, often among ngos that they will be contaminated if they do a cooperation with the military. but most places, it's only the military but has been rebuffed logistic capacity to project not only power, but to project water treatment units and sanitation equipment into a remote area and to take people out from the remote area who need more sophisticated care. so if you don't have the leadership on the ground, it can help reach those gaps of confusion. there's also continuing intellectual political task. obviously some groups, the red cross and quakers have a long tradition of relating to the military on the battlefield and knowing how to deal with the potential sense of conflict of perspective. but i think that's a dialect that has to be extended to all of these other groups that are active. i think some are fairly pragmatic. i think doctors would have orders right now. and ther
'll have to stay tuned for john kerry. and also, u.n. ambassador susan rice, who got into some trouble over libya and with what happened with libya. that's also in question. those are the two, top candidates. but we have to wait and see how the issues play out. >> in the meantime, the libya issue has been overhanging this election. allegations of a, quote, massive cover-up, by senator john mccain, about this administration's real refusal to put to rest this issue, before voting day. >> they didn't want to talk about it. everybody tried to pin them down on that. they did not want to talk about it. i think a lot of those questions will probably get cleared up with an investigation that's now going on. and there will probably be hearings, as well. >> and iran's huge. what we're going to do to that country and how we're going to handle that ongoing threat. >> iran is huge. you heard the israelis say there's only a small amount of time, maybe several months, before they could strike iran. i think president obama, what you see now, is president obama doing everything he can to avoid war there. >>
, we're talking about lincoln as an extreme leader, as an un unfitterred leaders, but there's home court advantages. tell us what effect the seating had as the convention plays out. >> guest: so lincoln's team is able to receipt sprouterrers -- recruit supporters from all across illinois. they bring them in chicago on discounted tickets. lincoln was a railroad attorney so they arranged that. they print fake tickets for the convention and stack the hall to the rafters with lincoln supporters. every time lincoln's name is mentioned, supporters yell and scream support so much so that the windows of the hall shake in response. this makes the convention dense. no one can think. davis, lincoln's campaign manager goes to the seating arrangement guys saying i want the new york delegation where weed is seated to be surrounded on all sides by other strong seward states. davis knows the condition will be such a zoo they can't hear themselves think or talk to each other at any distance. if weed is like this when the negotiations have to start, he's going to be physically blocked off from getti
mccain is softening his attacks on u.n. ambassador susan rice after vowing to block her potential nomination as secretary of state. republicans claim ambassador rice deliberately misled the country in the aftermath of the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. but rice says that she's not to blame, arguing she relied on the talking points from the intelligence community. although mccain had threatened a senate filibuster earlier this month, he's now open to meeting directly with miss rice. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind about it? >> sure. she can -- i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took. and i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> she could conceivably get your vote for secretary of state? >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> the white house says no decisions have been made as far as cabinet selections for the president's second term. and john heilemann, part of what you wrote about th
choice, u.n. ambassador susan rice, the obama administration's representative who gave the initial incorrect intelligence explanation of the benghazi attacks. still, most insiders believe rice and kerry are the two front-runners. white house veterans say clinton's eventual replacement will be on solid ground. >> the secretary of state in the second administration has the advantage of a president who has their bearings about what they want to accomplish around the world. >> in treasury the top candidate to replace timothy geithner white house chief of staff jack lew who has also served as the budget director. the president may decide to keep him where he is and perhaps look elsewhere to another senator or clinton administration veteran. at the pentagon leon panetta's departure may not occur until the spring but the list may include michele flournoy. she would be the first ever woman to head defense. rhode island senator jack reed, a west point graduate and veteran of the armed services committee. then there is john kerry if the president doesn't tap him for state. attorney general e

institutions like the un and world bank that they were all designed to be weak, they were all designed to play a secondary role to nations whose sovereignty we saw as inviolable. i don't think that is sustainable because so many of the interests you or i have as individual citizens of wherever we come from are really affected by decisions that happen on a global stage. >> host: david rothkopf is our guest. numbers are on the screen if you'd like to participate in this author:2 your 2-585-3885. in east and central time zones 585-3886. if you live in the mountain and pacific time zones, mr. rothkopf, former managing director of kissinger associates and current ceo of foreign policy. what is foreign policy? >> guest: divisional, washington post foreign policy magazine, the foreign policy website which is not much bigger than the magazine, three million visitors on the web site and runs a series of events and other programs on international issues. >> host: mr. rothkopf, in "power, inc." you have a chapter about a swedish boat. what is that story? >> guest: i wanted to go to the origin story of th
